I AM MESSY

My definition of winning is waking up daily,

making a conscious effort to be present and intentional with my thoughts and my energy.

Surrounding myself with people who recharge me rather than leaving me feeling drained.

Affirming myself, rewarding myself, forgiving myself for being too human

For being too emotional

Too much.

Understanding that I am not too much

I am a cup

Filled to the brim with

Love

Warmth

Insecurities

Obscenities

Forgiveness

Hurt

Promises

And sometimes I spill over and I make a mess

I am messy

And I am human

And I am flawed

And I am worthy of love.
